Privately owned Nottinghamshire home care provider, Caremark (Mansfield) continues to expand with the recent recruitment to their management team of Field Care Supervisor, Sarah Potts.
Sarah began her professional career in 2004 as a Community Support Worker, a role which brought her into close contact each day with people of varying needs and abilities, where through various support activities she was able to promote and support independence of those she worked with.
With extensive experience in supporting people with physical disabilities, mental health conditions, learning disabilities, autism, dementia and challenging behaviours, Sarah brings a wealth of skills and valuable knowledge to her new role.
In 2014 Sarah took up a post with NHS England as an Expert by Experience, as part of the Transforming Care Programme. As a member of a panel reviewing care and treatment plans and gate keeping issues, Sarah was able to put forth her recommendations to the panel and challenge care currently being given to clients with a learning disability in secure/forensic units.
Liaising with the Clinical Care Group Commissioners, Sarah worked to find pathways into the least restrictive care and treatment which would meet the individuals’ needs, along with any recommendations on changes which were felt necessary.
Sarah’ extensive experience, some of which has been honed from raising and caring for her own child with Asperger’s and Muscular Dystrophy, enables her to understand what good support should look like in the community.
As Caremark (Mansfield)’s new Field Care Supervisor, responsible for managing her team of professionally trained care workers providing bespoke home care to vulnerable individuals, Sarah’s is positioned perfectly to ensure all clients receive the care they hope and wish for.
